This presentation will discuss the need and differentiating value of Novatel’s Waypoint, Inertial Explorer software in helping to provide PrecisionHawk users with the highest accuracy one-click approach to LiDAR and hyperspectral post-processing for Agriculture.
With PrecisionHawk’s drone and drone data platform, businesses have greater access to low-cost, low-altitude data collection than ever before. High-end LiDAR and hyperspectral imaging sensors provide an entirely new perspective and deliver actionable information that can impact decision-making throughout the season. To harness the power of these technologies you need the right platform, data and precise position information in order to capture and deliver meaningful insight from your aerial imagery. By piecing together all the advanced technologies on the back end, PrecisionHawk is able to deliver actionable results, through an easy to use platform to assist with asset management on the farm throughout the season.
The Weather Company is an IBM business, and the content of this presentation focuses on how the most powerful computing corporation in the world is changing the way weather forecasting is done at high resolution, with precision at the farm field, on Demand.
Precision farming is continually evolving, with new technological innovations at every turn and constantly changing variables. We all talk about data, but what are OEMs actually doing to help growers manage their data? With so many service providers to choose from, how are OEMs like AGCO helping growers sort through the clutter? Join us for an informative presentation by AGCO’s Cody Light, Sr. Marketing Specialist for Fuse Technologies in North America. We’ll cover some recent innovations, as well as preview some groundbreaking technologies and services that are coming soon.
No two fields are alike, and it's no secret that all fields shouldn't be managed in the same way. Managing to field variability will make a significant economic impact at harvest.
But what goes into implementing variable rate practices on the farm, and just how challenging is it? What does it take to give a crop exactly what it needs, when it needs it, without significantly investing more time and more money?
In this presentation, Jesse Vollmar, CEO and co-founder of FarmLogs, will offer a behind-the-scenes look at how one single app is simplifying precision management for farmers and giving them the ability to create variable rate nitrogen and seeding prescriptions with the push of a few buttons.
Join us to learn:
- Why Jesse, a tech CEO who comes from a 4th generation farming family, decided to build an app that helps manage variability
- How the traditional approach to managing fields variably can be improved to accelerate adoption
- The critical role satellite imagery plays in the creation of FarmLogs Variable Rate Prescriptions
- Why real-time weather data should never be excluded from nitrogen prescriptions
- Plus: a closer look at other FarmLogs features, including Nitrogen Monitoring and Crop Health Monitoring
Data, of course, is at the core of precision ag. Data management must be given care an attention to avoid certain legal risks. This program will touch on the nature and extent of these risks, including the risk of litigation associated with data privacy and data breach claims. Internal and external data protection practices will be discussed and general laws related to data privacy will be introduced. Finally, the program will discuss the importance of having a data breach response plan and make some suggestions for areas that should be covered in such a plan.
